Title: 44 Foot Cedar Log
Post by: POSTON WIDEHEAD on May 09, 2018, 09:15:45 PM
A guy calls and says he has 1 Cedar Log he wants sawed.
I asked him what the diameter was.
He said he didn't have a tape measure but the small end was about 3 inches.

OK.....I took it hook, line and sinker.  :D :D :D
I said bring it on.....how does 50 bucks sound....he said sounds great, on my way.

Next time I'll ask the length too.  ::)

Will saw it to 8 foot lengths in the morning and make lumber in the afternoon.

You could set the record for the longest log ever quarter sawn.  The yield would be a little low, maybe down to 1 bdft total.

I hope the cedar log owner has a sense of humor when he learns his log has gone viral.

This was on the news the other day and it concerns one of the two "G" words mentioned often on the FF.  Maybe it's old news
